Q & A

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training MMA five years ago. I was already a brown belt in BJJ and collected many titles. Out of the blue, I started practicing Muay Thai, just for fun. I realized I was a natural, participated in a tournament and did really well. I liked the feeling of fighting standing up so I decided to pick up a sport that involved my two strong points and it’s been working out great.
